The AET63 BioTRUSTKey combines the highly successful silicon fingerprint sensor with a smart card reader to achieve ultra-secure authentication. It is a fully-integrated fingerprint-based biometric subsystem, combining fingerprint sensing and algorithm processing in a single, compact device. All biometric algorithm processing is carried out in a custom chip integrated at the back of the silicon fingerprint sensor.

Our biometric products leverage ACS technology and experience in implementing readers in smart card- based authentication programs. By partnering with a leading biometric sensor and algorithm supplier, we are providing a high level of security and convenience for applications in the government, corporate, financial and healthcare sectors.

With BioTRUSTKey, you have all the hardware and software you need to add biometric security to your custom applications. For PC applications, the BioTRUSTKey provides the highest level of security. This is because both the template extraction and matching algorithms run within the device itself – not in the PC.

The BioTRUSTKey significantly reduces development time and cost. Therefore new product design can be validated quickly and accurately. With the simple Application Programming Interface (API) provided, designers can easily add fingerprint authentication and smart card features into their products/applications. A system can be developed very quickly even without an in-depth knowledge of biometrics.
